The French Renaissance occurred between the 15th and early 17th centuries. This cultural and artistic movement began when Francis I, a patron of the arts, took the throne. In response, French craftsmen created deeply carved furniture to reflect Roman sensibility. These craftsmen designed furniture inspired by Michelangelo and Raphael, often depicting mythological and biblical themes. The upcoming Special Auction of French Furniture presented by Morton Subastas features a selection of French furniture, particularly highlighting works from the French Renaissance.
A highlight of the auction is a 20th century Henry II style French buffet in walnut wood. The available lot has two drawers with gold metal handles, five swing doors, and bun-type brackets. The buffet is decorated with flowers, vases, balustrades, and pinnacles. Another key highlight of the sale is a 20th century sideboard in carved oak wood. The sideboard has decorations depicting plants, flowers, fruits, and geometric designs. This auction will also include a variety of tables, chairs, cupboards, closets, beds, showcases, bookcases, and more. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
